SOLD — Ludwig Loewe Chilean M1895 7×57 Rifle

SOLD — Chilean contract 1895 Ludwig Loewe Full length 7×57 Mauser rifle. 28″ barrel. Good to Very Good overall condition. Made circa 1896. Small import mark under barrel: “SAMCO MIA. FL.” Serial numbers are mismatched—typical of early rifles that went back to the Chilean for arsenal re-build. Crest is intact on receiver ring. Cleaning rod is missing. Bore is dark. Wood and metal show typical service wear, but no abuse. Finish all looks original except for the buttplate, which appears to have been polished. (See photos.) Serial number H278X. The H-prefix Model 1895s were some of the last produced before Ludwig Loewe was merged into DWM in 1897. Many of this model were purchased for use in the Boer War. (BCY-082) Price: $575
